Who needs that many jobs?

By a feat of remarkable prescience, our next newsletter contains a reference to Labour ex-Ministers who feather their nests in the private sector. And yes, Patricia Hewitt gets a (dis)honourable mention!

It beggars belief that, after the sleaze scandals of the past year, our elected representatives still think it’s OK to supplement their  salary (paid by us) with inducements from the rich and powerful. Before I leave the subject of Ms Hewitt, may I remind you all that my old boss now sits on the board of a company called Cinven.  Never heard of ’em? Ah but you’ve heard of the company they own….BUPA! That’s right folks, the former Secretary of State for Health now advises a private health provider on how to undermine the NHS! You couldn’t make it up, could you?

How cold is my valley?

Who I am

This blog started during the months before the 2010 General Election, in which I was the Green candidate for Calder Valley. It's morphed into an account of green activism...and other meanderings.
